Cosmelan Depigmentation Programme

WHAT IS COSMELAN PEEL?

Cosmelan is the world’s best selling depigmentation peel with over 1 million treatments done worldwide.

The Cosmelan Depigmentation Peel is a unique, multi-ingredient chemical procedure designed to significantly reduce areas of hyperpigmentation and skin discolouration.

Cosmelan is a product that can treat all types of pigmentation such as melasma, post-inflammatory pigmentation, solar and senile lentigo (age spots) and freckles. Dull skin, dark spots, dry areas, blemishes, and even acne scars can all be significantly decreased with the peel. Cosmelan is a game-changer.


Key benefits of Cosmelan can include:

  • Reduction of all forms of pigmentation
    Includes melasma, post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, senile lentigo and solar lentigo (age and sun spots), and ephelides (freckles)

  • Improving uneven skin tone
    Creates a smoother and more even tone overall

  • Brightens and rejuvenates skin
    Active ingredients also helps to brighten the skin, giving it a fresh and revitalised glow

  • Reduces acne scarring
    The duality of corrective and regulating actions make it a unique, all-round treatment

  • Reduces fine line and wrinkles

The combination of active ingredients is also effective against signs of ageing

HOW DOES COSMELAN WORK?

Cosmelan works to correct hyperpigmentation while also regulating the overproduction of melanin in the melanocytes, preventing further pigmentation. It has a powerful combination of both pigment lighteners and pigment suppressors including kojic acid, azelaic acid, phytic acid, ascorbic acid and arbutine. Because the Cosmelan Depigmentation treatment is safe for all ethnicities and skin tones, anyone seeking out a fresher, more even complexion is an ideal candidate.

IS COSMELAN PAINFUL?

The treatment is virtually pain free. The patient will only feel some mild to moderate discomfort post treatment with peeling and dryness in certain areas.

WHAT IS THE DOWNTIME OF THE COSMELAN PROCEDURE?

The Cosmelan Depigmentation Procedure is an intensive resurfacing treatment that provides up to 10-12 days of downtime. Your skin will be red, swollen and warm for the first 3 days post treatment and then peeling will start. Peeling and dryness can be expected for up to 7-10 days. Sun exposure is to be avoided throughout the downtime with an SPF to protect your skin and your results. All post care products are included in your treatment price which will help speed up the healing phase.

ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS HAVING A COSMELAN TREATMENT?

Side effects with Cosmelan treatments are rare but easily managed. Some skins may feel a little red following removal of the in-clinic mask. This may be accompanied by some minor dryness and flaking. Any tightness may be easily relieved by applying a nurturing moisturiser such as Hydra-Vital Factor K – which is supplied in your post treatment homecare pack.
It is recommended to avoid direct sun exposure following a Cosmelan treatment and to wear a broad spectrum SPF30 every day before, during and following treatmen

WHEN WILL I NOTICE RESULTS?

Results being seen after one treatment of Cosmelan is to be expected. This can be in as little as 2 weeks post treatment or may even be 4-8 weeks post treatment depending on skin condition and concerns. Maintenance of pigmentation will always be needed due to external and internal factors.

HOW MANY TREATMENTS ARE NEEDED?

The Cosmelan treatment is performed as a once off treatment. Maintenance treatments may be recommended in your initial skin consultation.

IS THERE ANYONE WHO SHOULD NOT RECEIVE A COSMELAN PEEL?

If you are pregnant, nursing, are experiencing active rosacea, or have been using Accutane in the last six months, the Cosmelan Peel should be postponed.

RECOMMENDED PLAN

Phase I

Step 1

In clinic consult with one of our specialists.
During your initial consultation, our skin specialist will be able to fully analyse your current skin condition (including in-depth analysis of your pigmentation using a 3D photographic skin analyser) and assess what type of preparatory treatment you will need to prime your skin. If you are a suitable candidate for Cosmelan, our specialist may require you to use the pre-peel brightening peel booster OR an in-clinic conditional facial including Lactic Acid professional peel OR a combination of both before you begin your treatment. This is to ensure you receive the best results from the Cosmelan treatment.

Step 2

Prime your skin for treatment using the prescribed peel(s) recommended for you by our specialist.

If recommended for your skin, the 30% Lactic Acid peel must be performed a minimum of 4x weeks prior (Treatment performed in Clinic) and then at the 2 week point you may start to use the brightening peel booster (at home treatment). Strong healthy skin will provide better results. A skin that is prepared with Vitamin A and Vitamin C at least a month before will also have better results.

Step 3

Professional peel application (treatment performed by our skin specialist in clinic)

Involves a thorough cleansing of the skin followed by the application of a thick mask which all up takes approx. 30 minutes to apply. Once the mask is applied, you will go home with the mask on and leave it on for up to 8-12 hours depending on your skin type. Ensure you book a morning appointment for this treatment as you cannot sleep in this mask. 

Step 4

When the mask starts to dry, you will dampen (not wet) fingers and massage gently for a few seconds until it is moist again, or lightly spritz with water only. Continue this each time the mask starts to dry out. (At home).

Phase II

Consists of a 6-month home care maintenance program, which is critical to the success of the treatment. You will be given clear instructions to maintain your results.


Step 5

Soothing/healing care

First 72 hours

After washing off peel client uses Hydracream Fusion (cleanser), Hydratonic Mist (toner), Melan Recovery AM and PM. Hydra Vital face k (cream) Hydra Vital Face Mask (intense mask) can be used as an extra whenever skin needs more moisture. This must also be followed by Melan 130 Pigment Control Sunscreen AM and again through the day if going outside and any time you are in sunlight.

Step 6

After 72 hours

Client returns to clinic for a soothing facial and LED Light Therapy. At this stage your skin will feel very dry, tender, and tight. This will serve to soothe and restore moisture back to your face.  

Phase III

Step 7
Cosmelan 2

You will then be instructed to introduce Cosmelan 2 cream (included in initial professional/home take home pack) into your routine and continue using Hydra Vital Factor K, AM and PM into the routine. After the Hydratonic Mist, mix a PEA size amount of Cosmelan 2 with Hydra-Vital Factor K. We recommend using Cosmelan AM and PM initially if tolerated and then reduce to PM only.


Step 8

In-clinic Review & Booster Treatments

At approximately two weeks post peel you will come into clinic for a follow up to asses how your skin is progressing, as well as complete a booster treatment with LED therapy. This focuses on enhancing the cell renewal process, stimulating collagen, restructuring the hydrolipidic film and increasing the skin’s moisture levels.


Step 9

Maintenance

Cosmelan 2 is then continued for the next 6 months as well as continuing the use of other home care products. The Cosmelan home care products have been scientifically formulated to work together and so we encourage clients to only use these products, as other ingredients may affect the result. You can continue to use Cosmelan 2 3-4 nights a week indefinitely to control melasma and pigmentation.
